Discover Your World
Plenty of journals today will give you the story at a glance, amid an advertisement-laden morass of kitschy headlines and bullet points before sending you on your way. World at Large believes in a better class of journalism, and in providing engaging content to a better class of reader.
A well-read, well-educated society deserves the chance to know the full story, unburdened by political biases and ulterior motives. World at Large won’t insult our readers by assuming their attention span is won or lost in an opening paragraph. We believe that as a culture, we have to get away from junk values in our journalism.
Podcasts are changing the information acquisition space, while streaming services like Netflix have changed the shape of broadcasting forever. With the honor of the written word in mainstream media plummeting further and further into an irreparable abyss, there has to be a demonstration that such honor remains. World at Large publishes stories which explore the world honestly, balancing context, empirical fact, literary expression, and nuance.
Lacking formal education or accreditation of any kind, Andy Corbley knew if he wanted to have success as a writer, it would need to be born of his body of work.

He writes, because he must; and because like a great sponge his love of learning is only matched by the release of information - the release of objective truth to those who will listen - back into the world. His goal is to try to accurately tell the story of humanity and all her machinations, divine and destructive, found in the nooks and crannies of the world’s far corners.
